Pictures from the Yale British Art Museum

Okay, let's see if I can upload these pictures...

The piece I will be writing about is entitled "The Deluge" by Martin. It is the one piece in the museum that has always drawn me, probably because of its intensity and my Catholic upbringing... but more on that later.

Okay, still haven't figured out how to navigate all of this, but here is my url:

Museums I'll Be Visiting

Hi Everyone:

I've decided to start with the Yale Center for British Art on this Thursday, the 12th. I've then made plans to go into NYC the weekend of 11/22 with my two oldest daughters. We're going to visit the Met because I haven't been there in a long time, and if there's time, I will also go to MOMA.

I will visit the Wadsworth Atheneum during the week next week, probably Thursday the 19th.

I will visit the Bruce Museum in Greenwich on Saturday, December 5th and the Florence Griswold Museum sometime during the week of December 6th.

Looking forward to the visits and sharing my experience with the class!

Hi Everyone,

Being an incredible technophobe (I didn't even get on-line until 1998 and that was only because a friend in IT couldn't stand that she couldn't e-mail me so she gave me a computer), this is all new to me. Bear with me as I learn what the heck a 'blog' even is!
